A Fall Harvest Link to the Past

Today's post is to guide you to one I wrote last year. It's about the autumn time of year in the 18th and the 19th centuries, and I added more information and a few of more photos.
It's one of my favorites of all that I've written, mainly because Fall is my favorite time of year.
That being said, if you love history and tradition (and if you don't, why, pray tell, are you reading this blog?), then you would be doing yourself a favor by clicking HERE to learn about the fall harvest season in the 18th and the 19th centuries. Even if you've read it before, you'll still enjoy the additions.
Thanks!
Here are some historical-oriented photos to entice you to CLICK THE LINK (hint hint):

























Yes, this is a page from an actual coloring book! Hmmm...what color shall I use for the intestines...?

I will be taking my wife on a date to Greenfield Village in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to eating for the second time at the Eagle Tavern. Fall is her favorite time of year.

On a side note I really like how the Eagle Tavern has meals that aren't very common in restaurants these days. They change it to what is in season which I think is great. I see on there sample menu online they have venison, turnip and carrot pie. I do remember seeing rabbit on the menu a few months back. Can't wait to try something different.

I've attended my first Civil War reenactments the last two year and really enjoyed them. I like you idea of expanding out into areas besides just the battles...:)
